“By the word of the Lord were the heavens made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth…for he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded and it stood fast.”  “And God said let there be light and there was light.”

The very first chapter in the Bible, in the book of Genesis, God is described as creating the entire world and all its elements by voice command.  Is it just poetic expression by the authors, or could it also be scientific fact?

In a feature article published on PhysicsWeb.org in June 2001, while commenting on three independent experiments measuring cosmic microwave background, it made the following statement.  “The results show that sound waves propagated through the early universe in a series of harmonics, as predicted by the established theory of the universe’s origins-inflationary big bang theory.”

World Net Daily on February 11, 2007 posted an article entitled “God Did Speak World Into Existence.”  It discusses a research paper, written by a Kentucky science student, Samuel J.Hunt.  In his work entitled “Episteme Scientia, the Law of All That Is,” Mr. Hunt offers scientific validation for his thesis of God speaking the world into existence.

One such example is; that by sending a sonic signal into bubbles in a fluid, it causes the bubbles to collapse, and as they do, they release photons or create light.  Researchers at institutions no less than UCLA and the University of Chicago have verified the production of light from bubbles when sound is passed through liquid.  It is called sonoluminescence.

In a research paper by Ajay Sharma of Shimia, India entitled “Origin and Escalation of the Mass-Energy Equations, ^E=^mc2,” he comments on Albert Einstein’s famous unified field theory of energy by stating that the equation in essence holds good for all energies, chemical, electrical,sound etc., and that sound energy (^mc2(3) can be converted into mass.

Perhaps the Bible authors in speaking of the creation event, were speaking a truth far beyond their present understanding?
